This was the promise made by God to Abraham, (Ge 15:5, 6,)
which Moses considers now as amply fulfilled. Many suppose
the expression to be hyperbolical; and others, no friends to
revelation, think it a vain, empty boast, because the stars,
in their apprehension, amount to innumerable millions. But,
as this refers to the number of stars that appear to the naked
eye, which only amount to about 3,010; in both hemispheres, the
number of the Israelites far exceeded this; for independently
of women and children, at the last census, they amounted to
more than 600,000.
